Is there an existing listing compiled, that shows the presently tallied 10,000 song titles? It might be a quick reference before asking/wishing here (lest it be in there, and overlooked!). THX

Having the combination of drummer Billy Martins infectious funk/groove drums paired with in-the-pocket but simple bass riffs of Chris Wood as a style on BIAB would be simply awesome. Maybe adding Medeski backing parts too might be nice - but its the rhythm section in that band that are so awesome. Here's a clip from a recent concert by them https://youtu.be/u7Ct7z-7VSU Billy Martin has actually made a collection of drum loops of his playing. Maybe these could be licensed by PG music and

Jump to new posts unique ability of the 2018 Mac Band by w @ 06/02/18 10:30 PM

I compliment PG for their introduction of the Artist Performance Set 8 that shows us a unique ability of the 2018 Mac Band. I have listened to the Artist Performance Set with Quebec singer Béatrix Méthé, arranged in Band-in-a-Box with melody, lyrics added. Béatrix Méthé is 15 years old which to some extent may account for her somewhat strained vocals. Although that gives those songs a folksy sound. Never the less it's a start for what i hope PG provides us more Artist Performance Set

if you really want to attract composers and songwriters etc that already have a DAW that they have been using for ages - seriously consider adding the ability to change the Piano-Rolll editor behaviour to emulate behaviour in a specific well known DAW. This would of course apply to keyboard shortcuts but could also add emulation of any other GUI and interface aspects for particular DAWs that make editing more productive. So Cubase users can carry on editing MIDI as if they were in Cubase,

Now we have the Piano-roll MIDI editor here - one very common feature found in similar features in DAWs ( and many other OSX graphical editor type apps ) is the ability to scroll left/right and up/down and zooming in and out of the view area - by using the trackpad. It would greatly enhance the MIDI editing productivity to add such support on BIAB Mac. Also its worth taking a look at how the DAW Ableton ( for example ) also allows easy zooming in/out by means of clicking and dragging up/d
